Cozy & Soft +
A good makeup brush should leave a pleasant feeling on the skin so as not to irritate the area onwhich it is used.Contouring involves a lot of blending and passing with the same brush in places, so it's importantthat the fibers are soft and comfortable for everyday use.
Synthetic Fibers +
Brushes for contouring are made of soft synthetic fibers that enable better and more even productapplication.In addition to not absorbing excess product in this way, the possibility of uneven application is alsoreduced. Synthetic fibers also enable easier blending and uniformity of the product.
Ergonomic handle +
The long ergonomic handle has a dual role. First, it lies nicely in the hand and provides a firm andsecure grip, especially when holding it for a long time.Second, it is long enough to allow better and more precise application of paint to certain parts.Brushes used for color blending have a slightly shorter handle to better feel the pressure on the skin.
Maintenance and cleaning of brushes for contouring and accentuating the face +
When using contouring brushes, we use various shades of powder and corrector, so the first reasonfor regular facial cleansing is to avoid mixing the two colors. Contouring shapes the face and it isimportant that the brushes are clean so as not to make the mistake of emphasizing a part. Anotherreason for cleaning is the accumulation of dead skin cells and oil due to constant contact with theskin. Cleaning these accumulations reduces the possibility of developing problematic and inflamedskin.
